Default 82 FC-33: Any history on this coach?

Interesting ad below - looks nice but I sense this is an old listing. However, the auction just got re-listed this morning, so maybe it's current. Tried to call the number - out of service. The second link below is for an even more dated listing for the same coach - where it sold in Oregon a while back. Note only 3K miles between then and now (5 yrs).

Anyways, anyone know this coach? Coach name is 'EZ Going'.

I looked at this one when it was at the dealer in Grants Pass in January 2009. In my opinion it was in great condition, with a few minor issues, very minor as I recall. It was loaded with spares, filters, lamps, belts, etc. It had all of the manuals and maintenance records.

The only reasons I didn't make an offer; I wanted a diesel generator and the turbocharged 3208.

There was a guy posting here that had bought it back in May of this year, he let us know that he made it from Grants Pass to LaGrande, but no further contact that I know of. You might search for "Easy Goin".

I'd be willing to go and look/photograph it for another member if it is still in LaGrande or the general vicinity.

This guy seems to have purchased it May '10

So it's either an old ad, or he sold/traded it two months later.

Interesting how the current descriptions says " Has only been started for engine maintenance and upkeep for the past five years-no on-road usage during this time" but it somehow used to be in Oregon, now it's in Connecticut.

I searched for "lagrand 82" to find this. See first post of page #2 for picture, assuming you have the default "posts per page" setting of the forum. More specifically post #11 of the linked thread.

Yeah, the story just doesn't add up. Wish there was another contact number. Email to the seller via the auction site has not been answered thus far.
